The Make it Mondays at Papertrey Ink lately are really right up my alley. Last week, Dawn challenged us to do make our own embellishments and now today, Ashley's posted her challenge for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Stamping on Patterned Paper. Sweet!
I had this layout sitting on my desk for a week or so now, just waiting for some computer journaling... and something else, but I wasn't sure what. After watching the MIM #73 video, it hit me... it needed a little stamping on the patterned paper! So I used Susan's Harvest Berries set to add some leaves... what a great finishing touch!
I created a collage in Picasa3 with my photos on the left hand side and had it printed out as an 8x12. The photos of the tigers is an 8x10.
I used Crate Paper patterned paper, American Crafts cardstock (12x12) and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (Harvest Berries, On the Farm) and dies (uppercase block alphabet, half & half).
I lined up my alphabet dies to cut out my title and used the negative strip that was created.
Here's a close-up of my stamped image on the woodgrain patterned paper and my journaling tab that I made with the half & half die....
Which pulls out to reveal the journaling...
And while I had the Harvest Berries stamp out, I decided to make a card with it, as well.
I used another one of the Verve stamped mat stack 1 diecuts that Luanne sent me, as well as Crate Paper & Echo Park patterned paper, and Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), buttons (aqua mist, orange zest), button twine (rustic white), stamps (Harvest Berries) and dies (limitless layers ovals 3.5").
Thanks for looking!
